[mapguide-users] Connecting to WMS

Since a WMS layer is a raster layer, MapGuide requires that the 
Coordinate System of the layer is EXACTLY the same as for the map.

This means that the Coordinate System Override on the layer must match 
the map's Coordinate System exactly.

To see if there are any errors reported, look in the error log:
C:\Program Files\MapGuideOpenSource2.0\Server\Logs\Error.log
